A utility to completely remove one's display drivers. Useful for being as thorough as possible, for the various cases where leftovers are making proper troubleshooting or reinstallation difficult.

I couldn't get it to work.

  • aka DDU

This is not (yet?) in development, but is something I will keep an eye on.

The spiritual successor to Firefall

  • Crowdfunded with small step milestones
  • Unreal Engine 4
  • A shooter first, with great movement, guns and abilities. Skill matters. Progression is horizontal, opening up more options, abilities, and gameplay
  • Mining and gathering resources with the aid of huge, autonomous mechs. Resources matter, and finding and gathering them is fun
  • Build and customize your own "omniframe" suit and weapons system. Customize them to your unique needs and the role you want to fulfill
  • Sandbox world. Terraform the planet over time, create pockets of habitable areas and build refineries, defenses, and bases of operation
  • Play a simulated world, with dynamic events. Go anywhere, do anything. Events will unfold around you as you play -- perhaps even war

Though it can do other stuff, I use this to edit ISO images meant to be burned to a CD or DVD, to make them appropriate for copying to, and booting from, a USB stick.

Phenomenal. I wish I knew about this a long time ago. I've ignored many Linux distributions because of the very issue this tool solves.

Automagically repairs a boot loader.

This is something I wish I had/knew about a long time ago. I've had bootloader misadventures that really stressed me out.

I'll accept this, even though it uses systemd.

TheGun icon

A notepad.exe replacement in 6,144 bytes.

Particularly notable because its configuration is done through an external program which directly modifies the THEGUN.EXE binary.

I tossed this in with my portable applications. It's tiny, and I figure it's one of those "just in case" sort of applications.

  • 2016-03-21 - Tested 3.0f on Windows 10.

    • Yes, this version was made in 2004.

A defragmentation tool for individual files.

Note that defragmentation is irrelevant with an SSD, and even with a HDD, Windows will auto-defragment if you leave it alone for a bit. For windows 8 and Windows 10, my administrative settings are so aggressive that when I'm inactive for five minutes it pokes around to see what it can defragment.

  • As of 2016-02-15 on Windows 10, 1.35.04 is in my toolkit.
  • I had tested v1.0.0rc1 on Windows 8.1 a while back, for Path of Exile.
